The dinner at Brassica Kitchen + Café will be an intimate gathering with a multi-course menu created by Chefs Jeremy Kean and Philip Kruta of Brassica Kitchen + Café in Jamaica Plain, MA and Chef Angel Barreto of Anju in Washington, D.C. The menu will reflect their signature styles and highlight the uniqueness of their restaurants and communities. The dinner will also include beverage pairings for each course.
